Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The field of surface science provides a unique approach to understand bulk, surface and interfacial phenomena occurring during TiO2 photocatalysis as mentioned in this paper, including photon absorption, charge transport and trapping, electron transfer dynamics, adsorbed state, mechanisms, poisons and promoters, and phase and form.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Kelvin probe force microscopy (KPFM) is a tool that enables nanometer-scale imaging of the surface potential on a broad range of materials as discussed by the authors, including metallic nanostructures, semiconductor materials, and electrical devices.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A review of ion beam modifications at various solids, thin films, and multilayered systems covering wider energy ranges including the older basic concepts is given in this paper. But the results reveal that the ion-solid interaction physics provides a unique way for controlling the produced defects of the desired type at a desired location.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a review of the field of cluster beam interaction with solids, focusing on the impact phenomena, and discuss the physics of the cluster-surface interaction depending on the kinetic energy.

220 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the effect of co-adsorbed species on reactivity in heterogeneous systems has been investigated, and it has been shown that co-ad-bed species, both organic and inorganic, can improve surface activity and selectivity.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a self-consistent model of surface transport and morphological evolution is presented that has provided the basis for the theoretical and computational work that is reviewed, including surfaces of voids in metallic thin films.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors present a theory of the magnon propagation in a quasi-one-dimensional resonant structure, composed of one nanometric magnetic cluster chain and adsorbed clusters near the chain.
